Here's a new look for the main character in the Robot Museum, Nora,
(and a couple of Feebots, too) . The original design was a lot more Victorian, lots of layers of clothing. The critics (my wife) said she looks like she can't run around in a long, stiff Victorian costume. Argh! Why is she always right?! So, I had to go back to the drawing board and work out something new. I like this look way better. She looks like a kid. I love the Steampunk aesthetic, but I think it almost looks better with little bit of anachronistic irony, like Converse sneakers. There's a scene in the Scholastic story where she's in an anti-gravity room, hanging upside-down, legs akimbo and it looks hilarious in this costume. And her hair sort of echoes Quentin's tentacles.
